Fantastic and exotic representational subjects sourced from objects found in nature such as dried plant detritus, (leaves, pods, twigs, etc…) are ruminated over, then transformed into bronzes and paintings in this most recent solo exhibit of Kat’s work.
King states: “Elevating the humblest of discarded botanical fragments to iconic status for the viewer’s contemplation is an ongoing concept in my drawings, paintings and sculptures. I reconfigure the botanical/detritus fragments into small 3D models. Contemplating these models, I transform them into metaphorical subjects in the final art works.”
